After a close look at this season’s low heel ankle boots, it seems that the dominant color, or better yet non-color is black and the heel is low. This can only mean that the style of footwear is meant to flatter the outfits and not necessarily be the center of attention. No matter the design of the toe, they all justify the following rule for the ankle boots low heel style: simple and clean lines.
Black Is Back
Jimmy Choo Ada Pointy Leather Bootie
Black might be simple and in certain cases may seem dull, but Jimmy Choo knows how to transform these hybrid ankle booties into an amazing pair of low heel boots. Starting from the smooth leather and continuing with the pointed toe and back golden zip, these ankle boots scream simplicity, yet luxury. The 2 ½’’ covered heel brings delicacy to this pair of booties and the ankle-high shaft makes it imposing, thus creating a balance between feeble and strong.
Christian Louboutin La Cicogna Low-Heel Red Sole Bootie
Another pair of ankle boots that impress through simplicity is Christian Louboutin’s La Cicogna which features a calfskin upper and stretch gore sides that lead us to think that its main role is practicality first, then beauty. The red sole is the star of these low heel boots, but the reason why this pair of booties attracts all the attention is because it has a 2 3/4” heel and a comfortable round toe. Both pairs of booties can be worn during the daytime and nighttime, depending on the outfit, which proves once and for all that less is more and some would even consider classic.
Saint Laurent Double Zip Paris Ankle Bootie
Saint Laurent is the last shoe designer to show that black is back, especially when it comes to his Double Zip Paris Ankle Bootie. The first detail which gives us a hint that these ankle boots low heel style are far from classic is represented by the two silver-tone side zips. Completing the look of these fabulous kitten heel cousins are denoted by the smooth calfskin leather, pointed toe, hidden platform and thin square low heel. So, taking all these details into consideration, it is natural that this Saint Laurent pair of booties can be worn in almost any occasion. Put on your cool low heel ankle boots and you are ready to take the city by storm!
Black & White
Alexander Wang Jill
It may come as a surprise that a pair of chic, rather sporty ankle boots can make its way through the multitude of classic booties, but Alexander Wang knows how to grab everyone’s attention. In short, the reasons why these low heel booties are one-of-a-kind are the rubber platform and block heel. Both are in perfect balance with the smooth calfskin leather, cutout details and adjustable crisscross buckle strap. So, the combination of white, rubber sole with the black, leather upper can only lead to perfection. Alexander Wang’s ankle booties are perfect for a cool appearance, no matter what time it is.
Narciso Rodriguez Bicolor Short Ankle Boot
The other pair of black & white low heel boots belongs to Narciso Rodriguez and it represents the perfect contrast between suede and smooth leather. The stitched cap toe and exposed side zip represent these booties’ chic side, which go well with the two non-colors of the footwear. So, this is the perfect portrayal of how classic can turn into fresh and bold with a few details.
Acne Studios Suede Pistol
In order to make the transition from dark to light, one white pair of booties will prove that autumn can be fun, and flirty. Acne’s Suede Pistol proves that tonal stitching; ankle pull-tab and gunmetal-tone side zip can lead to a casual, yet stylish look. These booties represent a breath of fresh air and the 3” heel leads up to the edge of kitten heel height and is oh so beautiful.
Pierre Hardy Suede Drawstring Ankle Boot
Finally, if you want to impress your “audience”, choose a pair of Pierre Hardy Suede Drawstring Ankle Boots low heel. The first impression your feet get when you slip into this pair of booties is comfort and the eyes say chic! The blue suede goes well with the stitched seam at the vamp and the drawstring topline, but the cone heel is the key detail, which exhales fashionista. However, take into consideration that, judging from the electric blue of the bootie, this pair should not be worn during daytime. If you choose to ignore this advice, try not to wear them before noon, as they don’t mesh well with breakfast.
